Hi All,

I'm going to switch to Octopus as my utility provider as Simplicity has went bust and i've no exit fees.
I'll be moving to the Go tariff once i get a smart meter installed.
Would anyone care to share their referral code, then we can both benefit from £50.

Cheers

Good choice, switch to Octopus Agile when weather warms up

So basically as my conclusion:

The geofencing setting with time preference for off peak charging doesn’t have an influence. Need to always use the timer for departure set at 7AM and if not a very depleted battery it will not start before 10 pm.
What i would expect as common sense :

- if i set preferred charging time on location and the car tells me it has detected and therefore activated geofence preferred time zone charging, I would expect it to do exactly that ! And not start immediately if no timer is set ! Does anyone agree with me?

Secondly: why i EVERY TIME AGAIN have to push the left icon before i get out of my car. I have an app which says it is active. But when I don’t additionally push the icon in the car its on in the app but not really on !? Why the **** i need an app for then.....

real situation :
I arrive wednesday 3pm. I dont plan to go to work thursday so i dont push the icon in the car.
at 7pm i get a message i need to travel thursday. I open the app but dont want to start charging on peak immediately so i activate a departure timer in the app for thursday 7AM.
but i have to go outside, get in the car. Start the car. Stop the car. Wait till the screen with the charging comes up, activate the button, only then open my door and go back inside. If i dint do this, the car would not be charged at 7 AM on Thursday.
Others do this too that way?

It drives me crazy that I cannot get it to work in a common sense way.....

Yes, that sounds right. The app already tells you if the car is "ready for charging" (ie, plugged in). You would think they could have an option in the app that lets you go to the Timers screen and push a button to activate a biven timer remotely.
